      Vancouver Harbour Air Tour
      I love flying harbor air for travel, but I think it's absolutely bananas that if you book a seaplane tour over Vancouver with your significant other that you don't get to sit together. There was a couple on our flight who were forced to sit apart - the husband sat in a front middle seat (so he had to peer over a stranger the whole time), and the wife sat at the very back on her own in a single seat. For a flight, I understand, you are just getting from A to B, but a seaplane tour is an expensive adventure that you obviously want to experience with the person you booked with. My sister and I were lucky enough to sit together in a two seater, but why don't they enforce that if you are a single flyer you sit in the single seat, and couples sit in the couple seats? Just bonkers.

      Fun getaway only two hours from Seattle
      It was a beautiful sunny day and we had a chance to see all of downtown as well as part of the outlying area. I highly recommend this trip if you want to see the city from an aerial view as you, get to enjoy the landscape. The trip itself is 30 minutes, but feels longer.

      Great experience - 10 stars!!!!
      We booked the sightseeing flight almost two months ago and were really excited about what to expect. Today, Easter Monday, was the day. As we were early enough at check-in, we were given two tickets for priority boarding. When we arrived at the aircraft, the captain offered to let one of us sit in the co-pilot's seat. As a big aeroplane fan, I didn't need to be told twice. The flight itself was great. We flew towards the mountains, then downtown, past beautiful nature and over blue water. The sun did the rest and bathed Vancouver in a fantastic light. Unfortunately, the 20 minutes went by very quickly. The flight was worth every cent. We will be back and then book a longer flight.

      Must Experience tour of Vancouver
      An awesome and exciting way to see Vancouver. Our tour was about 30 minutes and even without a fully sunny day it was well worth the time, energy (and flight anxiety!) we are locals and still really enjoyed ourselves.

      Fabulous first flight.
      What an amazing adventure. My first time on a seaplane and it was a great experience. The location is easy to find, the pilot was friendly and informative, and the flight was prefect. Just enough time in the air to see the beautiful downtown and mountain skylines. I highly recommend this sightseeing opportunity.

      So much fun! The flight provided amazing views of the city and nearby mountains, parks, ocean and ships. We took the 20 minute flight. We would love to come back and do a longer one!

      THEY WILL STEAL YOUR MONEY
      They stole $800 from us and gave our tickets to other customers, refused to give us a refund or rebook us on another flight- absolute scam- total crooks who steal money from their “clients” avoid this place like the plague they are unethical and have no qualms about ripping off older ladies. We were in town for the Pacific Dental Conference and heard good things about this tour, paid $800, arrived 18 minutes before our flight and were told that we were 2 minutes too late and they’d given our tickets away (even though there was nothing about a check in time on the confirmation page). You absolutely cannot in good conscience keep our $800 and then give away our seats when we are there ready to get on the plane and refuse to give us a refund. This is highway robbery, do not do business with this company!!

      Best 20 minutes ever!
      I was so impressed with everything about this tour, from the front desk with the nice, helpful staff, to the waitress in The Cock Pit Cafe who was so kind to me, to the pilot and the folks who handled the actual plane ride. The take off and landing was super smooth and the pilot made sure to do a full circle of Vancouver so that every passenger could take pictures and video from all directions. Best 20 minutes ever!!!!

      Very well organized charter. The weather was great for Vancouver. Pilot was very good too. Overall great experience.
      The view was amazing and weather was great for Vancouver for this time of the year. Everyone was very professional. We really enjoyed our short flight around Vancouver downtown and harbour area. Seeing the city from the bird eye view was special.

      Co-pilot 👍🏻
      I had originally booked for early morning 10.30 but my flight was postponed due to foggy weather, so I was rescheduled for 12.30. When we got to the plane the lovely pilot asked if anyone wanted to be co-pilot so I threw my hand up and got to go in the cockpit with him. Had a great view over the city and a great experience. 100% the best thing to do in Vancouver!

      Thumbs down
      Harbour air sent a text message “informing me that I had 4 minutes left to check in” I was there at 11:01 instead of 11, when they told me I was unable to get on my flight that left 25 minutes later, I had to pay again for the next flight, when asked why even send a text, they said to give me another chance , what chance Is 4 Minutes???, also , if they had made the signage more clear I wouldn’t have spent 10 minutes trying to figure out where to go and I would have been there at 10:50 however the signage was confusing and I got lost. Bad experience all around, the agent was incredibly frustrating and unkind aswell. The only thing they did was tell me they gave my seat away and I would need to pay again.. but don’t worry they’ll make me pay another 100$ instead of 120 . Other than that it was okay, the pilot was nice and the plane back was 30 mins delayed

    The views were simply breathtaking. The pilot was awesome. Most spectacular flight we've ever had. Incredible value for money. Got really close to the glaciers and mountains, saw bears and beautiful lakes. Id do it again in a heartbeat.

    Great tour, great views. The staff was friendly and the booking without any problems. The pilot was nice and brought us very close to the glacier and some other points. I did not expect the tour to be as exciting as it was. It might be a bit of a challenge for people with a nervous belly and motion sickness. It’s not cheap but so is everything in and around Whistler. For this experience the money is well spent.

    I had booked whistler glacier tour for my family and we were really looking forward to it. Unfortunately our reservation was cancelled last minute and reason given was hot weather. By the time they called me we had already travelled for almost 5 hours and almost reached the whistler. I understand that due to weather sometimes they need to take calls due to safe operating procedure. But they could have planned it much better as weather prediction was there for atleast 3-4 days so its hard to understand these last minute cancellations. Also did not get any satisfactory answer as why our reservation was picked up for cancellation when they were still planning to go ahead with scheduled trip with reduced load.
    Customer rep told me they will sende some discount coupon for my future travel but did not hear anything after that. I wish as a good customer service there was prompt followup

    Brilliant service and flight. We had a cloudy, rainy day and appreciated being collected from our hotel. Check in was fast and efficient and the pilot spoke to us about whether we wanted to take the tour or postpone due to the weather. As our last day in Whistler we took the risk and it paid off! Amazing views, fantastic experience, flying around the clouds. We had to cut the tour short due to the weather but it didn’t lessen the tour, would recommend - this made our trip to Whistler.

    We have visited whistler several times, to see the area from the air though is to experience it in a much more dramatic way. The flight took us up for panoramic views of whistler and pemberton valleys, an a superb close up view of black tusk. The pilot kept up an informative narrative for the trip, and his water landing was much smoother than many commercial flights.

    Unfortunately, I booked this trip, but I was disappointed with the lack of parking information provided by the company. Furthermore, my attempts to contact the provider went unanswered, and there was a failure on the part of the Viator agent to share my contact information with the company. Regrettably, they also refused to issue a refund. For future travelers interested in this trip, I strongly recommend ensuring you have a parking spot arranged beforehand. Although there is a parking lot to the right of the roundabout, it is consistently full, so making alternative arrangements is essential. Additionally, to avoid similar communication issues, it is advisable to book directly through the provider to ensure they have your contact information and can get in touch with you in case of any unforeseen circumstances.

    Absolutely amazing views of the Whistler area. I would give it 5 stars if they had narration during the flight, but it was more like taking a commercial flight. Definitely wish someone could have told us all of what we were looking at.

    cakekrist, Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We are thrilled to hear you enjoyed the amazing views of the Whistler area. We appreciate your feedback regarding the lack of commentary from your pilot. Due to the high volume of traffic in and around Canada's largest port, our pilots are strictly in contact with Air Traffic Control which does not allow for them to provide a commentary throughout the flight. However, we genuinely appreciate hearing about ways in which we can enhance guest experience and are grateful for your review. Hope to have the opportunity to welcome you aboard again in the future!
